Thanks, here is Rusty raditor shop from Bar Mills. It's good to have friends.
I will try the streaking and then do some touchup on the other structure.

Wow, Tim, you really have made some progress these past several months. Rusty's and the junk yard are both some really nice modeling. And I'm glad to see your updates posted here.

Also, thanks for posting the asphalt road how-to back in April. I plan to give the method a try the next time I have a paved road to do.

I always thought Jurgens was a neat little kit. You sure proved it Tim. Great looking scene

I like the shape and character of both these structures, simple but unique. Where Rustys is going to be placed you really wouldn't notice it that much. I might re-think that and add a fascia board to the roof edge and some rafters and bring it to the front. Who knows what will happen
I appreciate the comments and it feels good to post. However, I did have to think about how to post photos once again, age ya think????

More to come!

Good to see you back posting again, Tim. Both the junk yard and the radiator shop look great. I look forward to seeing more pics.

The last two pics are not very good, but it shows the almost finished dirt road in another part of the layout. I have messed with this area to try to get the look of a dirt road, I think I am close, or at least to my eye.








Tim,

Did you ever reveal the secret to doing this amazing dirt road? I have searched high and low for an answer to this and have not found it..

Thanks,

Arthur

Hi Arthur,

Not much of a secret as it was trial and error. But I did find that using regular sifted clay dirt is a great start. I find that when I glued it down the color would keep changing so I finally found a method that solved that. I used the powdered chalks, it might have been Bragdons or somebody else's. Just use what looks like the dirt road in the area you model and scrub it in with a short stiff brush. I don't do anything else and it leaves it with a dry dusty dirt road look. Mixing the chalk color works well too, it allows you to have the tire track area a little lighter than than the edges and middle.
Also if you add grass to the middle, don't forget to scrub it too as it would be dusty.

Hope that helps.
